Provide an option to show attendees local time and recurring events on Schedule Assistant in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Provide an option to show attendees local time and recurring events on Schedule Assistant in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to view the current as well as local time for the attendees.
Currently if you are trying to schedule a meeting with someone and you go the scheduling assistance you can view the times you are available and also view what times the attendees are blocked this works well if you are in the same timezone. If for example i am in the US EST timezone and my colleague is in the UK when i look i only see my time, would be useful to see that 2pm my time is the equivalent of 7pm UK time.

Nobody reads the locale information in a meeting invite, so when it shows "Tuesday, May 7, 2019 9:30 AM-10:00 AM (UTC+05:30) Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi." anyone will think that it is "Tuesday, May 7, 2019 9:30". Outlook knows the current locale, why end user should calculate localized time ?

In the Scheduling Assistant it would be good, at a minimum to have the already configured secondary timezone available.
Add the "Scheduling Assistant" button into a recipients view on a meeting invitation to easily see the free/busy information for all invitees.
Today, as a meeting participant, I have to go into my calendar, open up the meeting invite and click on the Scheduling Assistant from there. Why can't this button be added to the meeting invitation?
When using the scheduling assistant, there should be a way to see which meetings are recurring.
It's especially annoying when trying to schedule recurring meetings to not be able to see what availability conflicts are caused by other recurring meetings, and which are caused by one off meetings.

I'd like to see who I've forwarded a meeting invite to in the Scheduling Assistant
